secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over two years. officials say some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies an improper relationship. the fbi discovered the e-mails during its investigation of kelley's e-mails, sparked by her complaints about anonymous threats which turned out to be from paula broadwell. they say they found no wrongdoing by general allen but turned the files over to the pentagon which monday ordered its inspector general to investigate. a social link between the two four-star generals, jill kelley who enjoyed socializing with the powerful in tampa while doing volunteer work for military families. she also gave people the impression she had some kind of state department status which officials say she does not. in fact, last weekend, she called police complaining about media

secretary panetta, the defense secretary, saying exactly that. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isaf in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence. to lead our forces, and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are. and we will. >> okay. so he continues, general allen, continues in his post as the top nato u.s. commander in afghanistan. but that nomination as the supreme allied commander in europe is on cold. it's all a bit of a mess right now. >> jill dougherty for us. the petraeus drama is playing out while the fiscal cliff, remember that, inches closer and closer towards us. just 48 days away. brianna keilar joins us from washington, d.c. so, brianna, i guess you have this fiscal cliff, that the administration is dealing with, at the same time you have this unfolding scandal. how is the administration, or has the administration really been dragged into the scandal? >> it's certainly been a di
